Krist Novoselic Made a Clerical Error During a Catch.
Nirvana’s onstage theatrics were nothing new to the band. Those antics, on the other hand, are not without danger. This was something bassist Krist Novoselic learnt the hard way during the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards.
As soon as his amp went out, he lost his calm and flung his bass across the room, where it landed directly on his head. In the aftermath of what appeared to be a horrifying fall, he was forced to stumble off the platform. The night began with a tribute to Axl Rose, which was followed by a solo performance by Kurt Cobain, who closed it out.
